 I wanted to make pancakes for breakfast on Friday morning, but I have a pretty terrible attitude about pancakes. I don’t like standing over the oven and flipping them over.

My new favorite breakfast has been experimenting with quinoa. I’ve made sweet and savory variations over the last few weeks that I’m excited to share. These dishes are easy to make, and they cook for 15 minutes, giving you time to wake up, get breakfast started, and enjoy a cup of tea (or rush around […]
